Drinking in Moderation
Drinking in moderation can reduce the chances of serious health problems. It's recommended women should have 1 drink a day and no more than 2 drinks a day for men.
One drink for example:
Bottle of beer (12 ounces)
Glass of wine (5 ounces)
Shot of liquor (1.5 ounces)
Improve your health by cutting down drinking or quitting. If you have a problem see a doctor right away. Drinking less or quitting can help lower your blood pressure, lower your risk of injury, heart disease, some types of cancer, liver problems, lose weight, and save money. If you are concerned with your drinking keep track of it by writing down your set drinking limit and how much you consume for 1 week. Do not drink when you are upset and avoid bars, or other places that encourage you to drink a lot. If you drink often make sure you are keeping up with your blood pressure. Change your drinking habits for a healthier lifestyle. Surround yourself with friends and family who support your decisions to cut down or quit.
Don't give up! Set goals for yourself and push yourself to conquer them!
